Solid Gold 1-1/8" Headset Spacer

Solid Gold 1-1/8" Headset Spacer
 Amity Bike Co. makes a solid gold 9ct 1-1/8" headset spacer.  Costs 199 pounds but might not be such a bad buy with the pound trading at 1.3 to the dollar these days...

Absolute Sickness: WeThePeople C.R.E.A.M. Frame

I'm kinda pissed this frame doesn't come in 20.5" and the back end is so short but it's still literally the most technologically advanced BMX frame to date.  It is designed and marketed by the German BMX company WeThePeople and made in Taiwan out of heat treated 4130 cromo.   It is the first BMX frame in history to make use of investment casting for the head tube and the seat tube junction.  WeThePeople used the investment casting technique for the dropouts on the Warriors frame before and has used it for the integrated seat post clamp on most of the frames for a few years. 

EDIT: wtp released the weights on this delayed frame and the fact is you probably shouldn't buy it because it weighs over 5 pounds for the 20.75".  supposedly its cheaper to make them this way, or it will be, or something.

Jackson Poll-in-the-ass-ock

This break is actually waaay less common than you'd think from how sketchy that weld looks on old Raleigh's.

In that parody song "Peformance" when the dude says "your pants are a joke" this is exactly what he meant. Don't tell me you can't feel your ass crack hairs swaying gently in the warm fith ave breeze. PS your suposed to stick the lock in your belt, not your butt.

Murrays quality was on the low side but the paint and decals on some of them are as classic as any other maker.

Maza.  Equipped with Campagnolo Athena.

Perforation is coming back hard.

High Five!!!!!

My absolute favorite single speed chain ring (or sprocket) of all time.  They come on 50's and 60's Raleigh's and Raleigh made/equipped bikes.

Bicycle License Plates

We see lots of vintage bikes with registration stickers but full license plates are rarer.  It's hard for me to grasp why license plates were required for bikes in lots of areas back in the day.  I have a feeling it had to do with lazy local governments trying to squeeze cash out of the bike craze.

Mine looked sicker...

Early 2000's S&M Dirtbike Classic with all the fixin's. Too bad it's probably a comuter now.
